Republican party disses soldiers: McCain nixes deal that would protect troops coming home

The Republican Party who has a long history of being anti middle and poor class and pro military has really managed to step in it this time. A study recently exposed that more soldiers committed suicide then the number of deaths via the result of combat. Representative Rush D. Holt a New Jersey Democrat introduced a bill that would force military services to follow up with returning soldier every 90 days. The bill was nixed by Republican Senator John McCain at the last minute. This is the same John McCain who served in the military and has made a career out of his military career and capture during combat. The irony here is this will be spun by the usual media sources to make it seem like this was a Democratic nixing. Here is the link to the full story.
